If you’ve recently read my Arlo Security Camera Review you’re fully aware of why I love it so much. Since I’m pretty confident that it was the best choice for our family, I want to talk with you about the extras.
There are lots of great Arlo camera accessories to make your security system work even better for you.
In addition to individual add-on cameras, there are several other items you might want to consider.
Arlo Camera Accessories
While the Arlo Pro cameras are weather resistant, you may want a little extra insurance against the elements. These silicone skins come in different colors to match your home’s exterior. Also, there is even a camouflage option. They are easily installed and replaceable.
In addition to regular silicone skins, there are silicone skins with hoods. These are designed to keep dew off of the lens while allowing you to easily alter the color of the camera. **NOTE** There are Amazon reviews alluding to the fact that these hooded covers may affect the quality of night vision. Apparently, the manufacturer is aware of the glare from the non-black hoods causing a reflection and reducing the quality of night vision. While they are working on a fix for this, take note that the black hoods don’t appear to have this problem.
Outdoor Security Mount
While it’s recommended for outdoor use, this can be used with your Arlo camera anywhere. This mount is great if you are looking for a little more range for your camera. It can be swiveled 360° and tilted 90° for more adjustability.
This is just one of the available base accessories. You can order additional wall mounts depending on the location that you want to attach your camera.

Arlo Pro security systems come with rechargeable batteries. While they are quick charging batteries, you can also purchase extras to have on hand to prevent downtime while charging.
Local Storage Device
Another accessory that you might consider as part of your system is a local storage device. This can be connected to your Arlo base directly by USB, therefore, providing you with a way to store your videos outside of the Cloud. To view your videos simply plug your external storage device to your computer or laptop.
Almost all of these items are optional. They’ll just give you a few more choices and flexibility with your system Consider adding some of these Arlo camera accessories to your Wireless Security Camera System.
